The Katz Center is proud to be hosting a professionalization workshop for early career scholars in Jewish studies on May 29–30, 2019, sponsored by the American Academy for Jewish Research, the oldest organization of Judaic studies scholars in North America. This year's workshop will be coorganized by Steve Weitzman, Katz Center director, and Lila Corwin Berman, director of the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History at Temple University.

The goal of the workshop is to support the professional development of early career scholars in Jewish studies, and to help foster connection and conversation across the boundaries of specialization and discipline. It will include guidance on teaching, publishing, public scholarship, work-life balance and other issues that bear on professional life in the academy. For more information about the program and how to apply, click here.
